Abstract
In June 1995, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a health hazard evaluation (HHE) request from the United Paperworkers International Union, Local 7903, to investigate (1) worker exposures to respiratory and dermatologic hazards from inhalation and contact with fungi- and bacteria-contaminated synthetic metal--working fluids (MWFs), oil mist, and grinding dust in the machining areas, and (2) ergonomic hazards at the Dana Corporation, Spicer Axle Division facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In response to this request, an initial site visit was conducted on August 22-23, 1995, and a second site visit was conducted on June 19-20, 1996, to evaluate environmental exposures. A walk-through investigation of the north building, which contains the assembly area, was completed. An inspection of the make-up air units on the roof that served the south building was conducted, and the cleaning and performance of some of the SMOG HOG air cleaning devices was observed.
